Mike Pompeo
U.S. Representative R-Kansas
CSPAN 07/24/2013
Pompeo: The amendment I offer this evening clarifies and confirms the scope of two programs that Mr.. Snowden illegally exposed while sitting in a hotel room in communist china. First the amendment clarifies that under section 702 No US citizen or person in the US can be targeted. Period. No US person under section 702 may be targeted
Mike Pompeo
U.S. Representative R-Kansas
CSPAN 07/24/2013
Pompeo: in any way by the United states government. While there are other specific authorities, the US person may be subject to an investigation. They may not , the US government may not do so under section 702 .and that is what this amendment intends to clarify. The second part of the amendment clarifies section 215. Also known as section 501 of FISA. The amendment clarifies that no content of communication can be stored or collected by the national security agency. That is no e-mail, no video clips, no Skype. No record of the actual conversation

Pompeo: the contents there of may recorded or collected by the national security agency. I can’t repeat that enough. That’s the intent of this amendment. I want to make clear to everyone that contrary to the suggestions of some, the NSA has not been acting outside of the scope of its authorities. The metadata program is carefully designed with program layers of oversight by all three branches of government. This is precisely the way our government ought to operate. With input from article one article two and article three of the United States constitution. It is our duty to make sure

Pompeo: that the NSA stays with in the legal bounds here in Congress and this amendment makes those boundaries perfectly clear for everyone to know and understand. We shouldn’t mislead the American people into thinking that the NSA has been acting illegally. There is perhaps no program in the United States government that is as carefully monitored and overseen as the program that this amendment attempts to clarify. (To the extent that some in this chamber wish to review or provide more protection)
